I’ve heard some people say “don’t use blessed be, because that’s forcing unasked for blessings on people” but just on the internet where people go out of their way to look for things to be offended by. I think if someone does not want a blessing, they are free to reject it. I think we can all use an extra blessing, regardless of from who or what it comes from!
Really? That is bizarre… I can’t imagine who wouldn’t want blessings! It’s like wishing someone “good luck”….who wouldn’t want that?
If someone were to say “Blessed Be!” to me I’d gladly accept and reply “I accept and may the same be for you.” or something like that. There is the concept of the divine living within us. We are the temple of the spirit. Emmanuel. The Holy Spirit. That’s where I’m coming from. I couldn’t imagine anyone being insulted by the good thoughts and intentions another person wants to gift you with. Words are very real and carry power.
